Welcome back to another edition of New Artist Spotlight. On this segment we take a look at American Glory by Eddy Yang.

There is a lot of potential in this record, however I feel it does fall short of expectations. Yang lacks in overall vocal quality throughout the record despite pretty good production value. A lot of the songs do feel incredible similar as far as instrumentation goes.
Songs 1-3 in particular just blended together it seems like. If that was the goal it certainly accomplished it’s goal. Many of the songs are also rather lengthy. Yang consistently hits over 4 minutes on his tracks even eclipsing 5 minutes multiple times.
Like I said, there is potential here but I was left wanting a little bit more.
